Black and White Wednesday: Direct Currents for February/March 1975

Happy Valentines Day, Groove-ophiles! While Ol' Groove doesn't have any romance stories for ya today, we can just continue our love-fest for what we adoringly call The Groovy Age today by looking back at the comics DC was unleashing upon fandom during the winter of 1975 (specifically February and March of 1975). How we gonna do that? By sharing the Direct Currents article from The Amazing World of DC Comics #4, baby! Enjoy the trip down memory lane--zero calories! (Unlike that box of chocolates you're eating!)







 How many of those magnificent mags did you get, Groove-ophiles?

  1. I had them all. The real standout was the Treasury Edition of the Bible. Although no promised follow-ups ever occurred it was a gorgeous package (tamed down for the comics buying public. Some of those O.T. stories were pretty raw). It is one of those "what might have been" moments in comics collecting.

    1. I agree 100%! I still treasure my copy!

    2. And it was going to be followed by a Treasury sized King Arthur comic, also drawn by Redondo. If you search a little on line, you can see some of the stunning art that was produced before the plug was pulled.

    3. I remember ads for it. When no more Bible issues appeared I figured King Arthur met the same fate. It's too bad neither Marvel nor DC has magazines any more (like Fanfare) that could burn up their inventory.

  2. I don't remember Ghost Castle, and I thought I knew all of the DC horror mags, they were always my favorite. Did it morph into the title "Ghost"?

    1. Nope, separate titles. Ghost Castle only ran 3 issues; Ghosts ran from 1971 to 1982.
